Engine won't start?
- Check the PTO lever has not become engaged, perhaps accidentally. This is a common cause of starting problems - it is all to easy to snag the lever with your jacket as you dismount. With the key turned to the start position, jiggle the PTO on/off lever with your other hand. If this is the problem you will hear the engine turn over as the lever hits the correct position.
- Check other safety switches have not engaged, for example beneath the seat.

Engine stalls when facing downhill, going over bumps or if you have a low body weight.Many people, especially lighter folk, have found that the engine dies when they lean forward in the seat. This is more prone to happen when facing down a hill, or trying to observe FEL activity. One owner at least found that a 5-minute adjustment to the switch beneath the seat solved the problem. On some models the seat switch spring consists of two brass stampings. Removing just one of them will reduce the tendency of the seat to rise up, but do not remove both or you will defeat the safety mechanism completely. Adding some weight to the seat to take account of a light driver might also work - for example the BXpanded toolbag that attaches to the back of the seat. As a last resort, eat more!

I have a BX2350 that was damaged by an employee running it low on hydrulic fuel. I had to reconstruct the PTO housing because the ball bearings in that area wnet loos and damaged the housing. I have finally been able to put it all back together, but cannot get the PTO to run. The PTO clutches are new and properly assembled (I tested them before mounting them). I have measured the oil pressure for the Power steering and the pressure is correct. I also measured the oil pressure on the Flow Priority valve and the pressure is on spec there. However, when I measure the pressure on the Plug that is by the PTO Clutch valve my pressure is 0. I disassembled the PTO Clutch valve and with compressed air made sure all the oil passages are not clugged. Does anyone have any idea what could be going on and why the PTO may not start? I am wondering if there may be something with the repair of the housing that could be causing the pressure to be diverted from the PTO ... any help is appreciated.
Do you find this valuable?
